If you've been following Taylor Swift lately you know that she's been hard at work re-recording all of her old songs that were previously released with her old record label, Big Machine. The superstar recently announced to Good Morning America that not only will she be releasing the new version of her popular hit "Love Story" in time for Valentine's Day weekend, but the rest of her album Fearless is also finished and will be released this Spring.
"I'm so excited to share with you that tonight at midnight I'm putting out my version of my song 'Love Story,' which was originally on my album 'Fearless,'" Swift told GMA in a video message. We first got a snippet of the song's new cut after Swift let pal Ryan Reynolds use it in his hilarious commercial for Match.com, and now we get to hear the full song.
"I've now gone back and recorded those so that everyone will be able to hear not only the songs that made the album but the songs that almost made it," Swift explained. "The full picture."
Six new songs from the vault will also be included on the new Fearless album and we honestly can't wait. Fearless was Swift's first album to win Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards and is full of some of her most timeless hits that really show off her skills as a songwriter -- "The Best Day," "Hey Stephen," "Forever & Always," "White Horse," "Breathe" (featuring Colbie Caillat), and "You Belong with Me." The album was number one on the billboards and we have a feeling that the new version of Fearless will be equally popular for longtime fans.
I'm thrilled to tell you that my new version of Fearless (Taylor's Version) is done and will be with you soon. It has 26 songs including 6 never before released songs from the vault. Love Story (Taylor's Version) will be out tonight. Pre-order now at https://t.co/NqBDS6cGFl 💛💛 pic.twitter.com/Vjyy2gA72O

On social media, Swift alluded to a release date of April 9th for the new album which comes less than a year after releasing Folklore and Evermore. While the singer has been vocal about how difficult the drama with Scooter Braun has been after he acquired all of her old master recordings, she told GMA last year that it has been a fun experience re-recording her old country music.
"So far, of the ones I've recorded, I think it's been the most fun doing 'Love Story' because the older music, my voice was so teenaged and I sometimes, when I hear my older music and my older young teenage voice, it makes me feel like I'm a different singer now," she said.
Swift added, "So it's been the most fun to re-record ones that I feel like I could actually possibly improve upon the song."
